Below the drive letter for the internal drive there should be "next drive" clicking on it should show the drive letter for your external drive.

From WMP Help menu

Burn a CD in Windows Media Player You can easily create your own customized CDs using Windows Media Player.

  1. Click the Burn tab, click the arrow below the Burn tab, and then click the type of CD you want to burn (audio or data).

  2. Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc into the CD burner. Or, insert a CD-RW disc that has files on it, and erase the contents of the disc by right-clicking the drive in the Navigation pane and then clicking Erase disc. (Erasing is required before you can burn to the disc again.)

  3. If you have multiple CD burners and the burner you want to use is not the one selected, choose the one you want to use by clicking the Next Drive link in the List pane above the playlist. Note that you can only burn CDs to one CD burner at a time.
